The Gadget Man – Episode 27 – Parrot Jumping Sumo Minidrone

This week we have lots of fun in the studio with the Parrot Jumping Sumo Mini Drone.

Packed FULL of sensors and technology including a spring which can be fired on demand to propel the Sumo into the air, this is a really cool Christmas gift for your over 14 year old.

You can control the Jumping Sumo using a smartphone app for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone. This allows for full control over the  Jumping Sumo similar to a remote control vehicle.

You can also build a road map within the map so the bot can perform a pre-programmed display.

It’s all great fun and can be bought for just over £100.

Thanks to Steve Puddle for his help organising the loan of the Jumping Sumo
